Automatic Motion Control
In future animation systems, based on synthetic actors, motion control will be automatically performed using artificial intelligence (A.I.) and robotics techniques [Badler 1986, 1989; Boisvert et al. 1989; Calvert 1988; Magnenat-Thalmann and Thalmann 1987a, 1989c—e; Thalmann 1989; Wilhelms 1987a]. In particular, motion will be planned at a task level and computed using physical laws. In the next sections, five steps to automatic motion control are described.
